Democrats Not Off to a Stellar Start | March 3, 2021
utilized in Washington, DC by the left I have a feeling they're gonna fall short of many of their expectations. But we can never ever, ever fall asleep on them. Never because they will use any and every means at their disposal, even if they've got to break the rules as we talked about yesterday. So quick timeout is in order. You're listening to conservative not bitter talk. I am America's realities are back here in just a minute.
Welcome back, talking about Ise with this behind the scenes during the break. This is something I saw. I think yesterday, it could have been the day before. I can't tell you how much this has entertained me. This is in psychology today. Written by Corey Clark. PhD. I don't know what her personal pronouns are. It looks here from the image that she is white, if that affects any of your perspective on what is about to be shared with you. Although I don't know how she identifies I just want to make sure I say that upfront. headline here are liberals really more egalitarian? subheadline recent studies I stinking love this beyond belief folks. Recent studies find conservatives treat others more equally than liberal. Oh, here's the bullet points in the takeaways. Recent experiments reveal that in some cases, it is liberals who tend to treat information and people more on equally on the basis of sex race, and group status. We'll no joke. I didn't need to do some in depth research to tell you this. And you didn't need it, either. But it's still interesting to find because normally what happens normally what happens is some intellectual and I don't know, Corey Clark, so I'm not this is not directed at her whatsoever. But is normally what happens is, the rest of us can see something as obvious as the noonday sun, some liberal researcher goes away into his basement or think tank or wherever coffee shop with a bunch of other liberals wherever they go. And they come up with a study research bunch of people probably in white coats. And they come up with research that says, hey, this what you see as obvious as the noonday sun really isn't true. And they'll give some explanation. They'll give some, you know, very verbose and just long winded explanation, that doesn't make any sense. But it's supposed to sound really intelligent, and you're supposed to think, oh, man, everything I thought was wrong. Right? I mean, this is how people feel guilty for their whiteness or whatever. You have a bunch of researchers come out and say how much just white, your whiteness is a problem. This is how these things get on LinkedIn study courses on how to basically cope with your whiteness. Lincoln, I guess has since taken down at least the most egregious online studies that they had posted on their platform, but these are the sorts of things that happen. Somebody with some credentials, PhD, Master of this, whatever comes out and says, Hey, this is this is what science This is what the science says. The science says x now. So this isn't this is actually telling us something we know and it is quite entertaining. She also the second bullet point here, kind of summarizing the article says this in a set of steps and a set of studies. Liberals wished to censor written passages that portrayed low status groups unfavorably more than identical passages that portrayed high status groups unfavorably whereas conservatives treated the passages more comparably. Again, not surprising, this does not necessarily mean that liberals are not egalitarianism what the summary says although I seriously doubt that it might be that liberals prioritize equality of outcomes. And there we go and view equal and view unequal treatment, at least for a time as a means of attaining equal outcomes. I want to speak to that for a moment. And I want to shift gears here, after the break to another story that I think demonstrates this or illustrates this quite well. But for people who say things like this, which which is okay, I believe in the equal this what this bullet point here is saying, I believe in the equal treatment of people. But for the meantime, since there's been such, you know, societal, evil or bad will, directed towards this particular group of people. Right, this is, again, this is how the left wants to look at the world, they want to look at everybody, as part of a group, that communism is the ultimate group, you don't have any rights as appeared as one cog in the wheel. See, for conservatives, for conservatives, I say, we are indeed We are a group of individual people. You are an individual person. Yes, of course, we are a we can be a group of people as Americans. But we are individuals who come together, we're not a group of people that are disposable. You know, the sum of people that one piece missing here, or there is no big deal. That's where really bad things happen. Throughout history. When people are no longer looked at as individuals, you are an individual with your own desires, dreams, passions, objectives, desires, whatever wishes, preferences. This is the way that I mean, we were all created different we have different interests, different ideas, different things that we we want to pursue in our lives. Different things that are on our list of priorities, some people don't have a list of priorities, whatever you're free to do, whatever, whatever you wish, and so far as it doesn't affect someone else's life, liberty, pursuit of happiness, property, that sort of thing. So liberals look at people the opposite, you're part of a group. First, a group has this identity, and you're just kind of one little piece, which is, by the way, if that's the way you look at it, the pieces quickly become disposable. Because it's the group identity that matters. And if one person's missing, people say, that's just the price you pay. And that just seems like a pretty heartless thing to me as a as a human being. But anyway, Anyway, I digress a little bit here. But what what they're saying here is that in order to in order to fix something that society or government or whoever did wrong, towards a group of people at one point, you have to overcorrect. Right, so the pendulum may have swung really far one direction, in order to get it back to to the center point, you got to swing it really far to the other direction. The problem is, then when you swing it too far, the other direction, you got to swing it back the other direction, right. And so you're constantly interfering and things and you're constantly you're never doing exactly the right thing. Because the thinking is, in order to do to have the right outcome, I have to push it further. We talked a little bit about this yesterday. It's why the left moves further left, they want to move the ideology to the left, they know that it's never going to be as far left as their positions, but it'll move somewhat proportionally to some degree to the direction they move left. So they'll go completely off off the hinges to the left, because it'll pull some establishment Republicans and public opinion overall to further to the left, same sort of thing here. If you overcorrect, you're gonna have problems in the other direction. Instead of saying, look, let's just treat everybody like people. Let's just treat everyone like a human being. Let's treat people as an individual. Let's for a moment and this is me talking. Let's for a moment stop thinking about everybody as part of a group. If someone has had an injustice done to them, then justice should be served. But you can't just the amount of the amount of things that they the government says it can fix in the name of injustices to a group of people. In many instances. Biden, by the way, Biden's administration, there was an advisor that came out and said they've already begun the process of looking into reparations, even without congressional support. reparations, we're talking about reparations for effectively slavery, for people that are being paid for by people who never had a slave never One at a slave never talked about any of those things. People because of their race, because they belong to a certain other group are going to have to compensate people who won't be popular as well, but who also were not ever slaves. But because of the and I'm not saying there's no consequences of these things. But reparations, by the way, if you want to do something in this nation, that is that totally. That totally destroys any hope of reconciling groups of people make one group give money to the other group, by force of law or by an edict made my by President Joe Biden. That's gonna go over Well, anyway, but this is what they This is how they view things. Well, we're here to make things everything everything right and fair. And Justin, in order to get to the justice, we've got to go past the point of fairness we have to overcorrect to create that, you know, to end up where we really want to be, instead of just doing the right thing. Instead of just treating people as individuals, instead of pitting one group of people against another, why can't we just and I know the answer to this. But for those of you who are rational, who do this already amongst yourselves on a daily basis, why can't we just treat people the way that they should be treated as individuals, instead of coming up with some sort of a scheme to create or to correct this, this larger, this larger issue of injustice done to some particular group by some other group, and then you know, make one group pay for the other or whatever the case may be? headline here in the Psychology Today article says, recent studies find conservatives treat others more equally than liberals. Take a quick timeout when we get back I want to share an example of this. An example of this that I've, again, the craziness is again, just sometimes in measurable here, quick timeout, come back and discuss that you're listening to conservative, not bitter talk. I'm your host Todd Huff back here in just a minute.
Welcome back. By the way, that program here is brought to you in part by our friends by our friends at Indiana wooded paradise Indiana paradise retreat is the website again Indiana paradise retreat is the website about one hour south of Indy 3030 minutes north of Bloomington nestled into 150 wooded acres with hiking fishing. Very large lake house 11,400 square feet theater game room all sorts of amenities there. And you can take you can have you can have retreats or use this property. Again, it's Indiana wooded paradise visit them at Indiana paradise retreat.com. So, started a hint last segment is something else I wanted to share with you today. We just last last segment talked about the psychology to take today article saying that conservatives, according to studies, according to science, you could say Science, Science proves that conservatives treat people more equally than liberals, which this has entertained me to no end. But of course, it's something that we know but to see it, to see it written in a in a scientific journal is something altogether different for me. Anyway, there is a situation that has developed, pulling up the article here. Do you remember the there was a poet, a poet who spoke at Biden's inauguration and let me find this thing and get too many things pulled up. Here's my problem. But there was a poet who spoke. Here we go at Biden's inauguration. Her name is Amanda Gorman. She's 22 young black lady, she spoke she she wrote a poem and she spoke that poem at the inauguration for those of you who may have who may have watched it, I did see it again, she's 22 Amanda Gorman so oh my goodness. So they're translating these poems in a different languages. And there is a an individual and I don't even know if I'm going to try to pronounce the name because it's Dutch and not not know that I can pull this off but the Dutch translator who is in the taking Amanda Gorman's work, by the way, according to this article here in the New York Post, this translator was personally chosen by Gorman herself personally chosen by the 22 year old black poet to translate her work her works. In the collection called the hill we climb to two Dutch. So she personally chose this particular translator. But that choice writes the New York posts sparked intense outrage with journalists with journalists and activists, Janice dual de ul, writing in Volkskrant that the translator should be a spoken word artist, young, female and unapologetically black. So apparently, just like Joe Biden doesn't think you're black. If you vote for if you vote for Trump instead of him. Apparently, this journalist and activist doesn't think I guess doesn't think that Gorman I mean, she's questioning the choices of who she wants to translate her work, saying that the person who translates it needs to be a spoken word artists themselves. I mean, this is really narrowing down your options. You have to know Dutch, which I mean that. Look, Dutch isn't one of the most highly spoken languages on the planet. So you have to know Dutch. You have to be a spoken word artist. You have to be young, whatever that means. I don't know. Janice duel has not giving us an age range. I don't know if that's just in your 20s what what does that mean? We need to we need to consult Janice over this female Now does that mean female biologically does that mean female by you know, how they identify what does that mean? That's a fair question in today's world and unapologetically black, unapologetically black. What if they're black? And I mean, and have they had what makes them unapologetically black? How many things have they had? I mean, what is Janice the soul? I guess, decision maker in this process. Anyway, long story short, the Dutch translator pulls out after this uproar. She pulled out he's not going to do it. Again, I just she says this, she wrote this, I am shocked by the uproar. You shouldn't be Dutch translator surrounding my involvement in the spread of Amanda Gorman's message. And I understand the people who feel hurt by this, basically, so just let this sink in. If you are white, you can't even help translate poems that are supposed to further the message of this particular black poet, you can't do that. That sound equal to you. Doesn't mean there's the left that sounds perfectly legitimate and rational. Telling you folks, you will never satisfy this bunch of ultra leftists they are insatiable. They will never be happy. They always want more power, more capitulation, more. Apologies more control more of your money. It never ends. It truly never ends. And this is when they are in. They are in control. They are in control. This is how they're behaving. I don't think this is off to a good start. Actually, I know it's not a little bit comical to watch, but still terrifying because they had the reins of power. quick timeout. You're listening to the home of conservative, not bitter talk. I'm your host Tada. back here in just a just a minute.
Welcome back. There's one other thing I wanted to touch on today. And I just I just wanted to throw this out there. And I know you've probably thought about this yourself already. But I just I wanted to put this into words, as we're looking at. I want to talk about the COVID legislation about you know, we were on to what COVID relief bill number I jokingly say 612 or whatever, but there's gonna be probably multiple more. This is now we've now set a precedent, right. We set a precedent. And you know, there's been multiple checks to the American people. I will say, you know, This This concept is not a it's not a good one. But of all the things that have ever happened, being forced by government not to be able to engage in commerce seems to be the most excusable measure that would have preceded a check going out. And if they tell you cannot work, or you know, you can't open your business, the strongest case for them to be made for them to actually provide something in lieu of that seems to be most reasonable. Still not a good precedent. I'm not arguing in favor of it. I'm simply saying, if you look at these things by degrees, this is the one that seems to be something that's easiest to wrap our heads around. But nonetheless, what I'm afraid of what I'm afraid of here is that this process where the government sends you money, since you general you, you money, the American people money, it creates in the minds of people that wealth and our sustenance comes from comes from government, getting people to assume that income comes from government when it's actually exactly the opposite. The reason government has money, folks, is because people in this nation, risk takers, hard workers, entrepreneurs, business owners, professionals have created, you know, blue, blue collar white collar people have created wealth, meaning that they have created things of value. And wealth was the result, money represents the increased value that is supposedly that has been created. Now in today's world government is printed, but that's a whole nother thing. But in theory, you know that money is the physical representation of wealth that has been created of making things better than they were before your human hand touched it. And so government gets their money whenever we have more wealth than is needed to survive and they can actually take taxes that's where they get their money from. But some people this this mentality, this mentality of looking to the government for money, concerns me because people might begin to think it's some dude that government car money comes from government, not the other way around. quick timeout back here in just a minute.
